There are lots of restaurants to choose from in this neighborhood. There are new ones popping up all the time. It is a little touristy so it's wise to keep your guard up to avoid losing your wallet or phone.
A trip in the cable car and funicular brought us to Bellavista and in particular Bellavista.
A range of good quality shops and restaurants made this place a great place to relax before going back to the heat and crowds in the centre of Santiago
I like Bellavista because it has Chilean food as well as international cuisine. The ambiance is relaxed and colorful. I love to see the elaborate jewelry and crafts.
It may be more expensive than other p,aces in Santiago Centro but it’s worth going to Patio...More
Plenty of restaurants, my experience varies from satisfactory to excellent. Prices are elevated, but this is not a rip off or a traditional tourist trap. Great variety of souvenir and art shops, prices vary, but it looked like a good value to me. Got some...More
We loved this neighborhood and bar area in the middle of Bellavista. Our group really enjoyed the Open Box bar, which we ate and drank at twice during our stay in Santiago. Our bartender, Kevin, was fantastic, spoke excellent English, and recommended local drinks and...More

They forgot a bag in a taxi and are hoping to track it down but unless someone who knows the taxi driver is here on tripadvisor, it is best to go through the taxi company. Not sure if that is possible.
Hello I plan to visit Chilie between October and December (before Christmas), and I also plan to do short Tores de plaines national park. The above plan would probably be after I have visited Antarctica. My draft 5 day plan for Santiago is: Santiago (Use metro trains) - Sky Costanera, Patio Bellavista- points of interest and eating area, Cerro San Cristobal + cable car, Barrio Lastarria niebourhoods and chic areas, old and modern architecture, experience some chilian night life and...More

You have covered many of the sights, but have not included the Plaza de Armas, the Cathedral and the surrounding areas of the centre. The metro covers well, but you will still need to do some walking to really see the city. 1 day for Sky Costanera and Lastarria, 1 day for Bellavista include a visit to Pablo Neruda's house now a museum, 1 day to visit the Barrio Alto. All these days combine will night life.

Santiago taxi scams (14 Replies)
I think I was extremely scammed by a taxi driver tonight, on the way to Patio Bellavista from our apartment on San Isidro we got an Uber that cost 1,800 pesos. On the way home a taxi drover charged 18600 under the guise of a Sunday night tariff. This is an obscene amount more for a tariff! Have searched online can't find anything that suggests this is true, Anyone else been ripped off by Santiago taxis? I'm pretty angry, we merely drove around the corner. He knew we were tourists, so...More

There is no special tariff on Sundays. Everything is by the meter. Always keep an eye on the meter. Taxi meters. everywhere progress at a similar speed. If it seems to be moving unusually fast, tell him to stop and get out. By the amount it looks like he just added a zero at the end.
Patio Bellavista (11 Replies)
Bellavista is one of Santiago's neighbourhoods which has been home to many artists and restaurants for years. I haven't been for lunch or dinner in a long time as it hit a low patch as far as safety was concerned a couple of years ago. Especially late at night. But it appears that the efforts of residents and restaurants are paying off and it is a pleasant option once again. Recently the Patio Bellavista was inaugurated. It is between Constitución and Pio Nono and contains restaurants, bars...More

DM I just read your comment to my husband. We will be sure to check it out. I love pisco sours. We have a Peruvian acquaintance that insists pisco is Peruvian. Last time we went we bought some things from booths in Bellavista at night. The booths I remember were fairly primative, kind of thrown together. My husband bought a keyring that is a penquin with a lapis lazuli belly for only $3. Later he wished he had bought several. He also bought several leather wallets.
